Lead track "Kopfkino" deserves showcase status, and with the following "Free Me From the Howl" I was in love with the album after two songs. But for me the beating heart of Ischaemia is the run of "Greeted By The Storm", "Eating All The Bodies", "Twelve Thousand Drops", "The Sky Is Taking On Light", and "With A Ragged Diamond". It is a five-song streak that will rival any such run on any album released this year. Can a debut album be a greatest hits album? Maybe so ...
